that is only good news.
It is the first step to legalize the Chocolate cars
they will all have to to pay sort of a legalization fee
money is always the solution

The news reports that beginning November there will be a national and state program(s) to plate non imported cars for about 1500-3000mn pesos, unclear if this means more of Anappromex style or something more formal or both, which obligates everyone to do so, and a large portion of the revenue will go local.

no plan to give those cars regular plates - yet.

At the moment owners are supposed to pay a small fee in return for the government looking a little more favorable at them
in theory less police harassment

Why are they rewarding people for owning cars stolen from the USA?
Many of the chocolate cars were stolen from usa, driven straight to Mexico.
In any case, the cars were stolen or illegally imported, so they should be confiscated and scrapped.
Makes no sense to reward illegal activity.




Woke!

Oh, the irony of this statement.

Most of the chocolates are not stolen, they are primarily cars bought in the US and driven across the border to live in Mexico without having been imported. We have two, which we would happily import except for the fact that they are precluded by age from the process. Currently, the only legal remedy available is to drive them both back to the states, sell them, then either buy a new car from a Mexican dealership, a used vehicle that has been legally imported, or a vehicle in the states that is eligible for importation. The federal Police have for years maintained a database of vehicles stolen from the states and can quickly determine if a vehicle has been stolen, and will confiscate it on the spot.

Hay Goat,

You might read the article!

“ Informó que para ello contrataron a la empresa LoJack la cual tiene autorización del departamento de criminología de los Estados Unidos y será la encargada de expedir las cartas de no robo de cada vehículo para evitar cualquier conflicto.”

Until I looked up what a "chocolate car" was, I thought GM had hired Willie Wonka as its new chief engineer.

My experience through MX friends is that local police look the other way. But they won't take them on the Hwy outside of town where they might run into the Feds.

Here is an article from NYE from a Sonoran news source; stating that AFTER the current amnesty for chocolate cars, there WILL be vehicle confiscations. While this is a Sonoran news source, it appears to refer to Federal officials who would conduct this.
